distinguished guest is the poet richard blanco, who will share with us words he has composed for this occasion. [ applause ] >> mr. president, mr. vice president, america, one today. one sun rose on us today, kindled over our shores, peaking over the smokeys, greeting the faces of the great lakes, spreading a simple truth across the great plains, and charging across the rockies. one light waking up roof tops. under each one a story, told my our silent gestures moving across windows. my face, your face, millions of faces in morning's mirrors, each one yawning to life, crescendoing into our day, the pencilled yellow school buses, the rhythm of traffic lights, fruit stands, begging our praise. silver trucks heavy with oil or paper, bricks or milk, teeming over highways alongside us, on our way to clean tables, read ledgers, or save lives, to teach geometry or ring up groceries, as my mother did for 20 years, so i would write this poem for all of us today. all of us, as vital as the one light, the same light on blackboards are lessons for the day, equations to solve, history to question, or atoms
